Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Much like her idol, the fabled Marilyn Monroe, the life of Anna Nicole Smith was destined to be tragically short. Far from a fairy tale, the story of Smith's life read like a page of pulp fiction: abandoned by her father at two, raised in the backwaters of Texas, and shipped back and forth between relatives all through childhood. And yet - somehow, this lonely little girl, miraculously and against all odds, eventually went on to follow in Monroe's footsteps to become a world-famous model and celebrity. Patterning herself after the legendary starlet, Smith kicked off her career just as Monroe had decades prior - by posing for Playboy. Unfortunately, with her deep depressions, heavy drug abuse and subsequent premature death, the 39-year old pin-up queen also followed the legendary Monroe to an early grave, under equally mysterious circumstances.
